Banknote & security papers

Thanks to its experience and expertise, Fabriano Security offers a wide range of security papers and security elements. The thorough search for new anti-counterfeiting systems, together with its multi-year experience, has brought to the creation of some of  the most innovative patents used in value security papers which are part in every walk of life.

Banknotes paper

The banknote is the most complex and prestigious value security paper from the technological viewpoint. It is manufactured using pure cotton-fibres paper, which makes it particularly 'robust' and more resistant towards wear and tear as compared to common paper. The many security elements which a banknote could have, may either be inserted, manufactured or applied during the whole production process. Pigments and fibres, watermarks, security threads, holograms, screen printings as well as superficial treatments coexist in one single product which apparently looks simple like standard paper.

Passports paper

The passport is definitely the most important personal identity document, as it permits the holder to be identified all over the world and to request a temporary or permanent authorisation to move about or stay in a foreign country. It represents one of the  value security papers bearing the highest security-standards, 'equipped' with visible and invisible fibres, watermarks and security-threads: its pages are sensitised towards highlighting any counterfeiting and are treated superficially in order to allow competent authorities to customise the first pages of the document.

Cheques paper

The entry-visa is the means by which a state grants a foreign subject the authorisation to enter its territory for a definite period of time. It is issued as a paper document to be applied on the passport. In addition  to common security features,  such as fibres, sensitisations, holograms, printing treatments etc. the visa is often applied in the form of an irreversible label onto the passport. Any counterfeiting or removal of the document will leave behind evident and indelible signs on the passport page.

Cheques paper

The bank cheque has rightfully replaced paper-money and for this reason many ' grades' of security features are applied. In addition to the watermark, visible and invisible fibres, corianders and sensitisations are inserted in order to prevent the counterfeiting of the support feature. Moreover, paper used in the manufacturing of bank-cheques is normally treated in order to allow  its customisation by the various  banks thanks to the use of  ink-jet or laser printers.

Tax stamps paper

The tax stamp is a security paper  used as a means of payment which makes public documents and acts a valid document. Since June 2005 , the traditional tax-stamps have been replaced by self-adhesive computerised/telematic marks in Italy,  which can be directly  applied to the documents.

Stamps paper

The stamp is an example of  security paper printed on one side and gummed on the other side,  which when applied on postal products is proof of the payment in advance for post services . Normally, security features applied are: watermarks, visible and invisible fibres, superficial fluorescent treatment  and  the classical glue coating which allows the stamp to stick to the postal product.

Likewise, admission to paid shows and special events is possible thanks to value security paper, which ensures the non-reproducibility of the ticket and hence impossibility to counterfeit the original one.

Ticket restaurant paper

The restaurant coupon is a means of payment exclusive of the  coupon holder, with  a predetermined value, which is usually granted to employees as a ‘benefit’  for the purchase of products or groceries. The coupon is manufactured with anti-fraud elements,  such as  watermarks, visible and invisible fibres, screen printing and holographic bands in addition to surface treatments that allow the coupon to be customised through toner printing.

Watermarked papers

After almost eight centuries since its invention, the watermark still today represents the basis of  security for the most known and widespread types of value security paper. Watermarked papers have always been synonymous with authenticity and are still today on great demand by organisations, public or private bodies and institutions that  wish to authenticate the documents and certificates they issue as guarantors.
